It was 1:30 a.m., and Anna was trying to keep her mind off her ex-boyfriend,
with whom she had ended a painful relationship hours earlier. It was too
late to call the therapist she was seeing to cope with low self-esteem and
homesickness, and too late to stop by a friend's house.
So, she turned to social media. "I'm having a really hard time right now,"
Anna - who asked to be identified by a pseudonym - posted on Facebook. "Is
there anyone I can call and talk to until I feel better?"
